Subject: [PATCH v5 0/9] libperf and arm64 userspace counter access support
Date: Wed, 13 Jan 2021 20:05:56 -0600	[thread overview]
Message-ID: <20210114020605.3943992-1-robh@kernel.org> (raw)

Hi all,

Another version of libperf and arm64 userspace counter access support.
This originally resurrected Raphael's series[1] to enable userspace counter
access on arm64. My previous versions are here[2][3][4][5]. A git branch is
here[6].

Changes in v5:
 - Limit enabling/disabling access to CPUs associated with the PMU
   (supported_cpus) and with the mm_struct matching current->active_mm.
   The x86 method of using mm_cpumask doesn't work for arm64 as it is not
   updated.
 - Only set cap_user_rdpmc if event is on current cpu. See patch 2.
 - Create an mmap for every event in an evsel. This results in some changes
   to the libperf mmap API from the last version.
 - Rebase to v5.11-rc2

Changes in v4:
 - Dropped 'arm64: pmu: Add hook to handle pmu-related undefined instructions'.
   The onus is on userspace to pin itself to a homogeneous subset of CPUs
   and avoid any aborts on heterogeneous systems, so the hook is not needed.
 - Make perf_evsel__mmap() take pages rather than bytes for size
 - Fix building arm64 heterogeneous test.

Changes in v3:
 - Dropped removing x86 rdpmc test until libperf tests can run via 'perf test'
 - Added verbose prints for tests
 - Split adding perf_evsel__mmap() to separate patch


The following changes to the arm64 support have been made compared to
Raphael's last version:

The major change is support for heterogeneous systems with some
restrictions. Specifically, userspace must pin itself to like CPUs, open
a specific PMU by type, and use h/w specific events. The tests have been
reworked to demonstrate this.

Chained events are not supported. The problem with supporting chained
events was there's no way to distinguish between a chained event and a
native 64-bit counter. We could add some flag, but do self monitoring
processes really need that? Native 64-bit counters are supported if the
PMU h/w has support. As there's already an explicit ABI to request 64-bit
counters, userspace can request 64-bit counters and if user
access is not enabled, then it must retry with 32-bit counters.

Prior versions broke the build on arm32 (surprisingly never caught by
0-day). As a result, event_mapped and event_unmapped implementations have
been moved into the arm64 code.

There was a bug in that pmc_width was not set in the user page. The tests
now check for this.

The documentation has been converted to rST. I've added sections on
chained events and heterogeneous.

The tests have been expanded to test the cycle counter access.
